Busted Elastic… And Not In My Knickers!

Apologies for another Silver Cross related post. OK, I’m not sorry… Not one bit.

The old elastic loops on the apron that held the hooks to place the hood up into ‘stop-your-child-getting-frostbite’ mode were perished and frayed. The first time Olive went out in the pram she decided to place her teething gums onto the hooks tearing the elastic out… Bad Olive!
I decided to try and replace the elastic myself last night.
I purchased some plain black elastic from Tesco, found my glasses, stabbed myself a few times, unpicked some teeny tiny stitches, swore a lot and in just 20 minutes I had both hoops replaced.
Now, blowing my own trumpet here but… God I’m goooood!
